Overall great experience. Staff was friendly, place was very clean. Staying here is well worth the extra 10 minute drive if you're planning on visiting the Kirksville area. I would highly recommend this hotel, and will definitely stay here again if I visit Kirksville again.

Recently stayed at the Depot Inn to visit a child attending Truman State. I've always heard good things about this place but this was my first overnight visit to the area. The Depot Inn is very clean, full of great train-themed décor and history and located just 15 minutes south of Kirksville. I highly recommend staying here.

This hotel was just great. We were visiting Truman University and wanted a nice place to stay. This place was comfortable, clean, had a nice continental breakfast and coffee area in the HUGE, bright and airy lobby. The beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom were updated. The owners and employees were very nice and very helpful. They remembered...

It's on the way of main road and easy to find out. There is a very good mexican food restaurant very close to the hotel, where you can drink various size of Margarita cocktail. We were welcomed by warmful service and it was good enough to stay at.

I was looking for a hotel close to Truman State University, and decided to stay here because of their affordable pricing and images of the lobby looked beautiful. The ACTUAL lobby was much more gorgeous, and I had no idea the entire hotel was dedicated to trains given the nearby Amtrak stop. My dad would have loved to see this....

The decor is beyond anything I expected! It is a little ways out of Kirksville but it is well worth it the only other thing is that the cab companies need to come down on their prices but the hotel itself and the owners are absolutely amazing and will do anything and everything they can to help you

“If there's space, ask for a room at the back so you don't get light shining through the window at night. Also, remember this is by a train station (hence the attraction), so you may want to set the room fan to "on" at night to drown out some of the train noise.”
